Crispy Rice Salad with Warrigal Greens and Jackfruit

Method

To make the crispy rice, combine all the ingredients together and then split the rice mix into three.

Make three even-sized balls then set aside until ready to fry.

When ready, heat up vegetable oil in a saucepan to 160C.

Fry for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

For the Jackfruit Salad, in a separate bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients until the sugar dissolves.

Place the rice balls in a bowl and crush the balls so they become flat

Quickly stir fry the jackfruit in a frypan with 20ml oil until warm, transfer to a bowl then add the remainder of the ingredients for the salad.

Dress the salad then top the rice with the salad.

Garnish with finely sliced chives and salmon roe.
